Ike Cha (the original founder and funder) has been feeding the homeless and destitute people in the street of Johannesburg's inner city over the last 15 years.
One Moment Foundation was formed to formalize this giving and sharing initiative in 2019 with Themba Chalumbira, leading as the co-founder looking after the foundation's day-to-day operations.
We thus have evolved and continue to find ways to improve our offering in helping other human beings.
One Moment Foundation's core focus is to facilitate the business or private sector contribution toward the three basic needs: hunger, shelter and education.
To be an ENABLER and an AGGREGATOR of resources and tools to enable Grassroots organizations that addresses Basic needs of Hunger, Homelessness and Education.
Our vision is to add value to the most vulnerable in our society focusing on their most basic human needs.
1. Funding remains our biggest challenge, as much as Lionshare has taken a bigger chunk of our expenses, we still have a gap every month
2. We have started penetrating informal settlements where our Doing Partners are and safety is not guaranteed
3. As we expand our operation through our Doing Partners, we will soon be short of Human Resources and a stronger team to help us realize our goals further.
4. Ensuring Quality control at all times at our food centres may be impossible
In our research, we found out that there are too many people starving on the outskirts of the Johannesburg CBD. This year, our focus is outreach and enabling passionate givers within the communities to be able to provide balanced meals to vulnerable hungry children.
We are setting up a Foodbank and conducive share house for distribution to where resources are most needed and fully appreciated thus making an impact.
With our clear objective, we hope and pray our current Funders will increase their giving and we can also attract new ones.
We currently run two in-house anchor soup kitchens, Powerhouse and Berea. Berea feeds the vulnerable.
Children and Powerhouse are open 6 days a week feeding the homeless and general feeding in Braamfontein.
We are committed to delivering food every week to our identified Partners we call Doing Partners. We started with one and currently sitting at jusg over ten Doing Partners, passionate and committed mostly empowered women in the townships and informal settlements in and around Johannesburg with a goal of national footprint in future.
